A woman was brutally raped to death by a teenager.

The mother wanted to go home after her friend’s funeral but she did not have a way to get to her house.

41-year-old Svetlana Sapogova accepted a ride from a teenager who also attended the funeral.

However, on the way home near Saratov, Russia, the teenager pulled over and attacked Sapogova while she was in the backseat of his car.

According to police, 19-year-old Danil Cheshko used a car jack to violently rape the mother before fleeing the scene and leaving her with fatal injuries.

A passerby noticed the injured woman and called for help.

Sapogova was still alive when paramedics arrived. She was rushed to a hospital, where she underwent surgery for injuries to her intestines, which were caused by the rape.

Sadly, doctors were unable to save her life. Cheshko was arrested for the crimes.

Sapogova left behind two children, a 13-year-old daughter and a son, 11.
